#18. DJ Quik, Way 2 Fonky (1992)

Label: Profile Records

Game:Way 2 Fonky was Compton shit. When that album came out, I asked my mom if she could buy it for me and she said ‘No.’ I had to wait because at that time if you weren’t over 18 there was no way for you to get the album. You would have to burn it from somebody on tape or something like that.

“That’s when Sam Goody and all the record stores wouldn’t sell to minors. You had to have your parents go get it, so when she said ‘No,’ I had to burn it from my brother. Back then, you had to have an adult with you to get anything: a brew, a blunt. You still do but it’s 2011 so there’s ways to get shit now. All these bad ass kids get whatever they want.”
